Hi. I live in Southern Oregon. We still have LOTS of Goldfinch at our finch sock. What I'm wondering is... do they migrate from here? They are consuming a lot of seed and don't show any signs of wanting to move on. Do I need to cut them off? Or will they just leave on their own?
I love them! But, don't want to discourage any normal behaviour.
Thanks!

They do migrate but much of the US is within both their summer and winter ranges. No need to worry about spoiling them. They'll move on if the urge possesses them to, confident that food will be found on down the road as well.

Thanks! I have an 18" sock that I have to refill every couple days! I may have to cut them off.

The goldfinches in my area stay year round, and we get some pretty harsh winters. I see them at my feeders even when the temps are in the single digits. I love watching them.
